• Self-Determination and Treaty

    Self-determination is about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people having control over our lives and Communities. A treaty is an agreement between two groups about sharing land and resources. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have been fighting for treaty as an important way of achieving self-determination.
  • Treaties in Other Countries

    There has never been a treaty between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and colonial governments in Australia. In other British settler colonies (where the colonisers came to stay), such as Aotearoa/New Zealand and Turtle Island/North America, there have been treaties negotiated with Indigenous peoples.

  • The Story of our Flags

    The Australian Aboriginal Flag is a flag that represents Aboriginal Australians. It is one of the official flags of Australia, and holds special legal and political status. It is often flown together with the national flag and with the Torres Strait Islander Flag, which is also an official flag of Australia. On the 14th of July 1995, the Governor General of Australia William Hayden proclaimed both the Aboriginal Flag and the Torres Strait Islander Flag to be 'Flags of Australia'.
  • Aboriginal Children in Aboriginal Care

    Bringing Them Home (1997), Family Matters Report (2017) and the Australian first delegation of functions and powers from the Victorian Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services to Victorian Aboriginal Agencies.
  • Child's Voice

    Children can become invisible, their voice unheard, when our work is crises driven and our focus is on carers and parents. Hearing a child's voice relies on listening, understanding and acting wisely on what they say. Only this allows us to respond to each child's needs, understand their views and encourage them to ask for help when they need it.
